So anyway it started distorting and now wont turn on at all can you please tell me what you think might need to be done?

    When it would distort it would bend on the right side of the screen if you were facing the tv. It would also take forever to get the tv to turn on . It would bend in and turn off. Thanks for helping me!

After some quick checks, it looks like, unfortunately, you have a lemon of a TV. First some basic info. All late model CRT TV's use the high voltage power supply to create all of the voltages it needs to operate. Which saves on parts & costs. The high voltage transformer used in these power supply's can be susceptible to failures & apparently your model is more prone to this than most.

When you said the picture started to distort, what exactly did it look like? If the transformer has not failed then maybe 1 of the power supply filter capacitors is shorted & causing the power supply to shut down. (a safety feature) A local TV repair shop should be able to determine the problem within an hour.

1 thing to try before calling someone, is to see whether the set needs a software reset. Unplug the TV for about 4 hours & then plug it back in. If the problem still exists, then you will need to contact the repair shop.

Why is my 42" Phillips LCD TV losing the picture about 1-2 seconds after turning it on? The blue power light at the bottom stay on even after the picture has gone away though.

Beware of doing anything to Philips brand TVs, without previous experience in service. This is the first thing I have to say to you.
Unlike other brand TVS, the Philips circuits are more complicated, and will be difficult to follow to a new-be. I think, you got me.
Please contact the authorized service center for Philips.

Suddenly without any problems for almost 2 years my remote control stopped working. I replaced the batteries, and still would not work. I went to Radio Shack and bought a universal remote, but I have tried...

I have very good luck with the Philips universal remote. The model number of the remote is SRP1003/27. I would suggest you find one the next time you are a a large discount store. The model number is near the upc code. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

Philips flat screen TV MODEL ID 19PFL5422D/27

I bought the television less than a year ago, so I called Philips Magnavox and they asked for the serial and model numbers. Next thing I know they asked for my name and address and Philips is sending a brand new television to replace it !!! The new one should arrive in about ten days. How's that for service? I'm very happy that I bought Philips and I will do so again. So don't forget to keep all the paper work that comes with your new televisions,especially Model and Serial numbers ! Thanks for asking , Debbie Hoffman
